This is a lower altitude trek takes you to Dudh Kunda Lake, also known as Shoring Yul Lha (Tibetan – meaning Defender of Solu area), a place of significant importance to Buddhist and Hindu travelers.

Trekking through rhododendron forests in full pink bloom, especially in spring, is in startling contrast to the otherwise green landscape. If luck is on your side you may catch a glimpse of the elusive Snow Leopard. It is more likely you will see Mountain Thar, bears, pheasants, and the ever-present yak while trekking along ancient trade routes. This region is home to various castes, such as Gurung, Sherpas, Magars and Khaling Rai, each with their own beliefs and traditions.
The Dudh Kunda Home Stay Trek begins in Phaplu following a trail through Ringmo (mostly Tibetan people), Sarsar Beni (3800m ) and Junbesi before reaching Dudh Kunda.
Sherpa Expedition and Trekking were established in 1977 and for more than 40 years have maintained a reputation as one of Nepal’s top tour operators. We guarantee this off-the-beaten-track will live up to your expectations.
The following information will give you some idea about what you need to bring for the trek. It is important you do not forget the essential items, as this will determine your comfort and safety on the trek. Equally important is that you do not burden yourself with unnecessary equipment on the trek.
(Note our company guide will carry the medicines and first aid kits during the trek. However, we recommend you bring your personal first-aid kit as well)
You will be accommodated in 3-star hotels in Kathmandu. During the trek, we will be staying at lodges/ teahouses. You may not find comfort and better quality teahouses homestay. It should be noted that at higher elevations the quality of accommodation may not be as good, with more basic rooms with the bare necessities.
In Kathmandu, your hotel includes breakfast, whereas all meals (breakfast, lunch, and dinner) will be provided during the trek. A staple food of the Khumbu region is potatoes, oats, buckwheat, Sherpa stew and Tibetan bread. Sherpas started farming potatoes when the first seeds were introduced to the region in the early 90s. There is a limited choice of food at higher elevations and except many potato dishes. Potatoes are high in carbohydrates – an excellent source of energy needed at high altitudes.
We use a private car for sightseeing and for the airport to hotel pick and drop off. We do not have to use public transportation or local buses during the trek. Our only flights are from Kathmandu to Lukla and return.
Dudh Kunda Homestay is a challenging trek where you often have to walk 6-7 hours a day. You need past experience of hiking or trekking but if you have done any kind of trekking activities then it is always a plus!. We have met people from all walks of life, shapes, and sizes who have completed the trek. The only difficult part is when altitude sickness strikes and the effect that it can have on your body. Before leaving for Nepal it is good if you can prepare yourself physically by increasing your stamina and oxygen intake.

Dudhkunda Lake Trek - although it was physically intense, was one of the greatest experiences of my life. The scenery and culture are just incredible.
